Research priorities within women's mental health

To mark International Women's Day, MHIN Knowledge Exchange Officer Marguerite Regan has interviewed one of the leading researchers in women's mental health, Professor Louise Howard, head of the Section of Women's Mental Health at the Health Service and Population Research Department, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, Kings College London.

Louise has been working as a researcher in women's mental health for over a decade, and in that time as been involved in research spanning prenatal mental health, the development and evaluation of interventions for women with mental disorders, and epidemiological studies on the outcome of mental disorders in women. She discusses the pertinent research areas within women's mental health today, her research around violence and trafficking, and her involvement in work to make global mental health a research priority.
